Category: Definition of Refractory Metal

The term ‘refractory metal’ is used to describe a group of metal elements that have exceptionally high melting points and are resistant to wear, corrosion, and deformation.

Industrial uses of the term refractory metal most often refer to five commonly used elements:
Molybdenum (Mo)
Niobium (Nb)
Rhenium (Re)
Tantalum (Ta)
Tungsten (W)

The identifying feature of refractory metals is their resistance to heat. The five industrial refractory metals all have melting points in excess of 3632°F (2000°C).

Cemented Carbide for Watch Chains

0 Comment

Cemented Carbide for Watch Chains For the new generation of watch chains, the reason why cemented carbide should be used as the core raw material is that it has better wear resistance and the product is not prone to deformation under any circumstances. In this article, let’s take a quick look at the cemented carbide […]

Tungsten Alloys for Gamma-Ray Shielding Material

0 Comment

Tungsten Alloys for Gamma-Ray Shielding Material In addition to tungsten-nickel-iron alloy (W-Ni-Fe alloy), γ-ray shielding material can also be produced with tungsten copper alloy (W-Cu alloy). W-Ni-Fe alloy and W-Cu alloy are both high-density tungsten alloys, both of which use the W phase as the hard phase, but due to the difference in bonding phase metals, their production processes and […]
